Hi there. It will be hard to find the vehicle identification (VIN) unless you readily have access to any documentation for your vehicle, such as the registration card, insurance documents, any police reports, or vehicle history reports. Otherwise, you (or someone else) will need to be with the car to find the VIN number. You can find it on the driver’s side door or visible through the windshield on the dashboard on most cars.
